I'm a Ysolda Fan

I love her patterns - shawls, fingerless gloves, toys, sweaters and more.


I've been waiting for the arrival of her latest book, Little Red In The City, and I'm happy to say that it is here!

This book is both a resource book and pattern book to help you create perfect fitting sweaters every time. The great patterns in this book have a huge range of sizes along with guidance on customizing the fit.

This will be a go-to reference book for your knitting library. I know one is going home with me!

Sidekick!

The Schacht Sidekick Wheels are HERE!

It took me approximately 5 minutes to take this out of the box and get her all set up.

I have to say, it is an awesome design. Very ingenious in how it all folds and unfolds and everything that you need is in this nice, compact, lightweight wheel. This one is small in stature, but spins like a big wheel.

Time for a Sale on our Sale Yarns!

We have lots of great yarns ordered for the upcoming Fall and Winter and will need more available shelf space once they all start arriving, so you know what that means, right?????

WE'RE HAVING A SALE IN OUR CLEARANCE AREA!

All Clearance items including yarns, books, and knitting bags, are 40% OFF through the end of July.

As more yarns and books move out, we'll be adding more, so keep checking back to see what else has been added.

 

Up, Unfortunately.

As I posted on our Facebook page last week, wool prices are going up for our suppliers. Unfortunately, Cascade has announced a significant price increase on almost all of their yarns, which means that the shop will also have to increase our prices on their yarns.

Now is the time to stock up on your favorite Cascade yarns. I'll have to raise the prices soon, so come in and get some great yarn at the existing prices! (Please help....I really don't want to resticker everything.)

Showing You More!

Let's continue on with the new arrivals!

Every season, I always anticipate the new Norah Gaughan booklet from Berroco, and the latest does not disappoint!



Norah Gaughan Volume 9 features great cables in an inspiring range of sweaters and accessories in soft subtle shades as well as bold and bright colors. The yarns are worked in both dreamy soft shades and bold bright colors.


Another new yarn for the fall season is Souffle.


Berroco Souffle is a blend of acrylic, wool and alpaca in a super bulky weight. The chainette construction of the yarn makes it nice, light and lofty, but will still retain the warmth. (The chainette type yarns are big this coming season - you'll see quite a few of them.)

Another new yarn is Flicker.




Berroco Flicker is another "chainette" style yarn with a blend of alpaca and acrylic. Super soft, but with a nice surprise. Nestled in the strands of the chainette is a soft, glittering tinsel-like filament. The metallic elements are matched to each shade (either silver or gold) and they are completely soft to the touch.


Each of the above yarns have corresponding pattern books too, Berroco #310 & Berroco #311!

Berroco has landed!

As I posted previously, our Berroco order for Fall is here, and what a great collection of yarns and booklets it is!

Since there are multiple yarns and books, I'm going to break up the new arrival posts into several over the next couple of days. If you're local though, they are ALL out on the shelves waiting to be fondled!

First up - One of the new yarns for the season is Berroco Boboli!


Boboli is composed of an enchanting mix of shifting colors. A glimmering wool blend boasting a subtle shine and soft hand, this yarn lends cool-weather projects an air of sophisticated originality. It knits up at a recommended gauge of 5 stitches per inch on a US #7 needle, and the colorways just have to be seen in person to appreciate this yarn in the fullest.

Of course, Berroco is great with pattern support for their yarns, and we have the corresponding booklet Berroco Boboli #312 in stock right now!
